The White House said in a statement that the president’s daughter and her family are “extremely concerned” about the recent attacks.
The statement continued: She is not the first person to be targeted by bullying.
As a young person, Sasha was bullied by classmates in a crowded school, and she was also bullied in high school.
Sasha is also a dedicated advocate for women’s health issues and a member of the US delegation to the United Nations, where she works on health and economic equality issues.
In 2017, Sasha went on the frontlines of #BlackLivesMatter and participated in the #MeToo movement to end sexual violence against women.
“The White house is committed to providing a safe environment for all students, families, staff and visitors, and will continue to ensure that every student has access to the best educational experiences possible,” the statement said.
